What is Fashion Revolution ?
vendredi 26 avril 2019 à 04:00
Fashion Revolution is a global movement that runs all year long.
Fashion Revolution strives to be action-oriented and solution focused. Rather than making people feel guilty, we help them recognise that they have the power to do something to make a positive change and in collaboration with companies and policymakers bring a wider systemic change.
We often call ourselves “pro-fashion protesters” because we LOVE fashion and want to see it become a force for good.
FASHION REVOLUTION WEEK 22nd – 28th April 2019
Fashion Revolution Week is our #whomademyclothes campaign in April, which falls on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people and injured many more on 24th April 2013. That is the day Fashion Revolution was born.
For the third year in a row, we are bringing Fashion Revolution in Luxembourg and we engage consumers in the discussion on Fashion, Sustainability and Innovation. We are designers, academics, writers, business leaders, policymakers, brands, retailers, marketers, producers, makers, workers and fashion lovers.
We are the industry and we are the public.
We are world citizens.
We are you.

We want to unite people and organisations to work together towards radically changing the way our clothes are sourced, produced and consumed, so that our clothing is made in a safe, clean and fair way.
We believe that collaborating across the whole value chain — from farmer to consumer — is the only way to transform the industry.
Our mission is to bring everyone together to make that happen.
The Big Clothes Swap

Have you heard of Marie Kondo and her decluttering method ? Can you relate ? Is your closet overfilled, but you still wake up and sight “I have nothing to wear ?” You can change that !
If you have clothes that stopped sparking joy, it’s time to let them fly and spark joy in a new closet !
HOW DOES IT WORK ?
Bring the clothes you do not need any more and find your dream item in return.
ALL THE CLOTHES LEFT BEHIND will be donated to Red Cross Luxembourg, so you know that your clothes will be in safe hands this way or the other !
